Voigtländer Euryscope Series IV No 4 360mm F6
Voigtländer & Sohn Extra Rapid Euryscope Series IV No 4. This lens
comes with a focal lenght of 14 1/3" (or 360mm) and a starting aperture of
F6. According to the catalouge it could be up to 11"x14". In reality it will cover even more.
History: A masterpiece of german lens making from the late 1880ies. The Voigtländer Extra Rapid Euryscop offers the best of the two worlds, its well corrected (way more then the petzval design), but also offers a quite high open aperture of F6 (way faster then the stadard aplanat). The series number is 31.975, which dates it back to the year 1886.
Condition: The condition of the lens is quite good. The brass shows some character and was not polished, overall it shows a fine patina. The glass is in an overall good condition, there are some cleaning marks like with most authentic lenses from that age. There is no haze, fungus or seperation there. The lens features a waterhouse slot (not stops included).
The lens comes with a flange and a really well made lenscap!
